Following on from this incident, things at home went from bad to worse. My placement leader (PL) felt that it was in everybody’s interest for me to move. She spoke to a lady who had hosted a previous CWW volunteer and she agreed to take me. I had met her a while back and we got on so I was happy with the decision.
On Thursday my PL broke the news to my host and later that day I went to visit my new host to arrange a time to move in. She said that I could move my bags in on Saturday but she had a Guatemalan student staying till Sunday. This was not a problem because I had made plans to go back to Cayo on the Saturday night.
When I got back home on Thursday evening I told my host that I would be leaving on Saturday and she reminded me that Saturdays are not good because she is at church all day. A quick phone call to my PL and my final move date was set for Friday, 2 pm.
I packed hurriedly on Thursday night and on Friday I dropped my bags off at the office. My PL had not spoken to my new host to tell her that their had been a change to the date and time of the move. We waited until the end of the work day and could not get hold of her. Thankfully another volunteer had a spare room for the night so I stayed there.
I went to Cayo for the weekend and moved in to the new place on Sunday. I feel a lot more settled in my new home and I am a lot happier than I was a last week.
Oh…I am allowed to have visitors, I can receive phonecalls and I am allowed to call anyone in the Belmopan area, I have my own door key and my own door into the house.
NOTE TO FAMILY: My contact details are at Funky Town so please pass the message on to those who are offline..
I should also say thank you to two people; one for giving me a place to stay and one for keeping me company during the day on Saturday when I was in transit/homeless :).
